hi all,
 
in the time that i've been researching archive material from American Car & Foundry (ACF), i've run across a posting of original drawings that are being housed at the st. louis museum of transportation.  the website states that the drawings being presented were sold and as such are posted here. please take the time to thank the website owner for their kindness.

the drawings are primarily details for a 'modern' galley car.  this is a treasure trove for you standard gauge folks.  among the details are drawings of centersill, diaphram, and bolster specs.  need a more detailed example of 'modern' car construction?  here's your example.  happy downloading....make sure you have the time and space?!!

hi all,
